Up until about BC, lyric verses were written like prose, i.e. without paying attention to metric units (e.g. in the Berlin Papyri the Pérsai by Timotheus and the skolia PMG ; also the tragic anapaests in PHibeh 24(a), 25, i 4ff.). The introduction of colometry is linked to Aristophanes [4] of Byzantium (Dion. Hal. Comp. ;   Prose Rhythm in Latin Literature of the Roman Empire: First Century B.C. to Fourth Century A.D. (Studies in Classics, 27) by the role of accent and ictus, colometry, typological versus morphological readings of syllabic strings, and the basic differences between Greek and Roman rhythmical practice. Undaunted however well, maybe a little. By systematically analyzing poetic and prose texts in relation to one another and to diverse authorial subjectivities, Cato the Censor and the Beginnings of Latin Prose: From Poetic Translation to Elite Transcription offers an entirely new perspective on the formation of Latin literature, challenges current assumptions about Roman cultural. Book I We're travelling back almost years to AD 79, a time when the Romans controlled much of Europe. The magnificent Italian city of Rome is the centre of the Roman Empire and miles to the south of the capital are the beautiful Bay of Naples, the slumbering volcano Mount Vesuvius, and the prosperous Roman town of Pompeii. Let's explore Pompeii, meet some of its.

Twenty articles from two often dissociated areas of Latin studies, classical and medieval Latin, examine continuities and developments in the language of Latin prose from its emergence to the twelfth century. Language is not understood in a narrowly philological or linguistic sense, but as encompassing the literary exploitation of linguistic effects and the influence of formal rhetoric on prose. In this article we describe a series of computer algorithms that generate prose rhythm data for any digitised corpus of Latin texts. Using these algorithms, we present prose rhythm data for most major extant Latin prose authors from Cato the Elder through the second century we offer a new approach to determining the statistical significance of such data. The book allows students to sample a wide variety of Latin prose texts and illustrates both development and generic differences. Each text is accompanied by a short introduction and brief notes that exp Filling a major gap in the literature, this useful collection of Latin prose offers ninety-six short passages ranging from the second century B /5(8). Stichometry refers to the practice of counting lines in texts: Ancient Greeks and Romans measured the length of their books in lines, just as modern books are measured in pages. This practice was rediscovered by German and French scholars in the 19th century. Stichos (pl. stichoi) is the Greek word for a 'line' of prose or poetry and the suffix '-metry' is derived from the Greek word for.
